Monitoring Your Pipeline Today Will Allow Growth Opportunities in The Future

Toledo, OH – February 26, 2020, Oil and gas transmission companies are leaning on all manner of technology solutions to protect their products and the environment. Hardware sensors installed on a pipeline combined with high powered data processing allows companies to learn about leaks or damage to strategic assets. Traditional ROW monitoring includes both aerial and ground based inspection. In today’s charged political environment, pipeline companies are recognizing now more than ever that eliminating damage to infrastructure and leaks is paramount if they ever plan to upgrade or grow their assets in the future.

In North Dakota, Energy Transfer has received approval to expand the capacity of its Dakota Access pipeline. Energy Transfer is a client of Satelytics through the iPIPE consortium ( and is including remote sensing using our software platform in its “all the above” approach to leak prevention and detection. Satelytics forward reaching algorithms allow transmission companies to spot leaks on an up to daily basis with alerts sent directly to response individuals in as little as 2-3 hours after an image is obtained. Satelytics software can process spectral data from any platform using its robust pre-processing framework that has been built by world class artificial intelligence scientists and programmers. All-of-the above is done without any human interaction which minimizes the workload on your companies’ biggest assets, your employees.
